#104 closed defect (fixed)

[Trac] Bug reporting tickets don't ask for enough information to pinpoint the software versions in use.

Reported by: overbyte Owned by: erikos
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Version:
Severity: Major Keywords:
Cc: Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: Resolved


I don't see how meaningful debugging can be done from the bug tickets here. The fields on the Create New Ticket form don't ask for such basic information as what version or build is being used, what machine it's running on (a real XO or an emulation on what platform), and a suggestion for reproducing the bug on someone else's similar system. I also find it helpful to start a bug ticket with the name of the key software component in square brackets at the start of the subject line.

Can more fields be added to the bug ticket form?

I think this is something the triage team should take care of, Simon.
